While Megabus is one of the cheapest travel companies around, the services it provides are generally agreed to be pretty poor: in most cases, you get what you pay for. While those trying to save as much as possible might want to try it out, it may be better to go to their competitors- unless you don’t mind problems, and aren’t under any time limit.
